    On a new installation of WordPress, I am getting

    The GD image library is not installed.

    when I go to the Media Library.

    However, by running a test.php with a phpinfo(), it appears that GD IS enabled.

    From phpinfo()
    GD Support enabled
    GD Version bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
    FreeType Support enabled
    FreeType Linkage with freetype
    FreeType Version 2.3.7
    T1Lib Support enabled
    GIF Read Support enabled
    GIF Create Support enabled
    JPG Support enabled
    PNG Support enabled
    WBMP Support enabled
    XPM Support enabled
    XBM Support enabled

    It is on a hosted server, so I can't restart apache.

    Turns out it was a bit of bad data that was hanging it up. When migrating the blog initially from WordPress hosted site to self hosted site, I did NOT have GD support enabled, and turned it on after the fact.

    When I remove the media library data, I was able to add new media.
